Yello on Yates, located in downtown Victoria, is a 209-unit, 15- and 11-story purpose-built residential rental building with commercial offices and retail space on the first two floors.
The project is one of many for which we have provided building enclosure consulting services to Chard Development. Team members from our Vancouver and Victoria offices were involved in both the pre-construction and construction phases of the project.
The unique design of the building enclosure meant that it was important for our team to develop a building enclosure strategy early in the process. This forward-thinking approach allowed our team to identify and help mitigate any potential risks during the design and construction phases.
Our extensive involvement in the design phase included reviewing the various components of the construction documents, such as shop drawings and assembly specifications. Our team also provided field review to ensure that the design was successfully realized during the construction phase. This work included supporting the contractor, Kinetic Construction, with applying the design specifications on-site and overcoming any enclosure-related challenges.
The building was completed in 2018 and positively reflects the client’s vision for the project.
